Master chef to give city a Filipino heart

New Zealand Herald 12 June 2016

He won over the MasterChef NZ judges with his modern take on Filipino food, now former pig farmer Leo Fernandez is set to open a restaurant in Auckland's Parnell.

The restaurant will specialise in Filipino and fusion cooking and is to be called Azon - short for a common Filipino name, Corazon, which is also Spanish for heart. It is expected to open in September, 12 months after Fernandez's loss to Tim Read in last year's MasterChef NZ final.

The vet turned restaurateur said the name was a reflection of his vision to offer food "cooked from the heart" and true to his ethnic roots.

"We want to uplift the name of Filipino cuisine, so that people will learn about what is quintessential Filipino food," he told the Herald on Sunday.

Despite being given a boost on MasterChef NZ, the Southeast Asian fare still lags in popularity to more well-known Asian gastronomic options.
